Here's another card using Waffle Paper and Bells and Boughs. This time I watercolored the image.
Next time, I think I'll actually add another layer instead of just inking around the edges. But then again, maybe not...

This is a Big Shot card! The snowflakes and the letters both were cut using my favorite tool. The card was sprayed with a shimmer mist spray (shimmer mist paint and rubbing alcohol mixed in a spray bottle). The shimmer mist really does shimmer in the light. It was just hard for me to capture it with the camera. It adds a nice bit of sparkle to a card.

Love the Northern Flurry embossing folder and the Northern Frost decorative strip (for the Big Shot)! They combine to give lots of texture to the card.
The snowmen are from Jolly Bingo Bits and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I was thinking this card would be great to use for my Christmas thank yous. But you could use any of a number of sentiments on this card (Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Thinking of You, etc.).

On Sat., Nov. 13, I will be offering a Christmas Class (see the classes page for details). I am so excited about these projects! I love the set Rejoicing in Christmas. We will be make this card using that set:
Inside the card says:
Rejoicing in the joy of the Christ Child's birth and wishing you a Christmas filled with the love and peace of our Savior.
This card is simple, yet looks very nice. The picture here does not give it justice (in my opinion). This is one of my favorite Christmas cards that I've made this year.
We also will be making a gift card holder that is fast and easy to make, yet looks very impressive:
And we'll make an assortment of tags using Tags til Christmas:
The to and from is on the back of the ornament tag.
I hope you'll be able to join me Saturday! Contact me to register.

The Northern Flurry embossing folder is so cool! Check out those giant, raised snowflakes. The snowman in the bottom corner is from Jolliest Time of the Year. I used shimmer paint on the snowflakes and the snowman to give them a little pizzazz (it's there, even though it's kind of hard to see in the picture).

I CASED myself on this card. I made a similar card last year and wanted to update it with current products. This time, I made it monchromatic for a different look.
The colors are Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla. The vase is the ornament punch with the bottom cut off. I used the Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack in Brights and the Autumn Days stamp set.
Note: CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything (or sometimes Copy and Steal Everything). Those of us who post our designs online or teach you how to make them in classes want you to use the ideas for inspiration. When I CASE from someone else, I try to give credit to the person I originally got the idea from (though sometimes I don't do good documentation and I have to give a generic credit).
